Drop Off Your Movers for Moms Donations At Brighton Ford

We are collecting women's hygiene items for LACASA - Livingston County, MI all month long. Thanks to TWO MEN AND A TRUCK in Brighton for organizing this drive special for Mother's Day! #BelieveInOurCommunity

Learn more about the TWO MEN AND A TRUCK Program Movers for Mom’s:

Working with charities and giving back to the community is a high priority here at TWO MEN AND A TRUCK®, and one of our top campaigns,  Movers for Moms®, has kicked off.

When Mary Ellen Sheets founded the company in 1985, one of the main goals she had was using her platform as a business owner to help others any way she could. The Movers for Moms® program focuses on helping mothers in need around the time of Mother’s Day by providing them with essential care items they need most. While most moms are being celebrated during Mother’s Day, many are living in shelters due to unfortunate circumstances in their lives. This campaign aims to make this day a little more enjoyable for them, and to show appreciation and compassion for all they do.

“From day one, Mary Ellen took care of charities, and the brand has raised the bar even as we continue to drive our vision and achieve success,” said TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® CEO Jeff Wesley. “To have our own charity that is integrated within the brand and supporting moms in need is something to be so proud of. The hard work of every TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® location and team member, along with the impact they have, is just phenomenal. I am so proud of the Movers for Moms® program and all of the locations dedicated to moving moms forward.”

The program was created by TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® in 2007 and is the most successful campaign the system sees throughout the year. Since the program’s creation, we have been able to collect over 800,000 items that have been donated.

TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® partners with local businesses, organizations, and schools, along with women’s, family, and homeless shelters in their communities to make this all possible, donating trucks and manpower to pick up and deliver charitable items that are donated to recipient shelters. Donation items vary from shelter to shelter, but often include things like soaps, hair styling products, shampoos, conditioners, pillows, blankets, slippers, and other clothing items.

2016 was the most successful year of Movers for Moms® to date, as we were able to collect more than 285,000 items! The program took place in 39 states, and each franchise location for TWO MEN AND A TRUCK® participated last year. We were able to partner with more than 400 businesses, schools, and community centers across the country to make this all possible.

If you would like to donate items locally, please drop them off at the Brighton Ford Showroom and if you have any questions please email Movers4Moms@twomen.com.

Plant A Pinwheel To Prevent Child Abuse - LACASA

LACASA Center’s Child Abuse Prevention (CAP) Council hosts its annual Plant a Pinwheel Celebration each April to commemorate National Child Abuse Prevention Month. This year’s event is set for Wednesday, April 4, 2018.

The community gathers at the Howell Carnegie District Library for a presentation on child abuse prevention. The event culminates with children from area schools planting a Pinwheel Garden along the library’s front entrance.

Blue pinwheels are the national symbol for child abuse and neglect prevention. The pinwheel is an uplifting reminder of childhood and the bright futures that all children deserve.
The Pinwheel Garden project symbolizes the community’s commitment to protect the children of Livingston County.

LACASA’s Pinwheel Day is part of the national Pinwheels for Prevention campaign conducted each year by Prevent Child Abuse America.

Plant Your Own Garden
If your school, business or organization would like to plant a pinwheel garden in April, please contact LACASA’s CAP Coordinator, Holly Naylor, at 517-548-1350 or hnaylor@lacasacenter.org. Please join us in recognizing this national month and building awareness about how to prevent child abuse in our community.

Pebbles Has Made An Amazing Recovery & Is Ready To Be Adopted!

Hi! My name is Pebbles and I am a 10 year old (spayed) female, shorthair Tortishell cat! I am amazingly social and I LOVE people!!! I get along well with small dogs, cats and children but prefer a more quiet home if possible. I'm not quite sure about playing yet because I came from a house that was overrun with other cats and playing wasn't something I was able to do; I'd love for someone to be patient and show me how to do that! When I came to the Humane Society of Livingston County, I was so thin and sick that I could barely breathe and all my teeth were rotting out of my mouth, but since being in a foster and having all my teeth extracted I am loving life!! I eat extremely well and have gained 2 whole pounds!! Occasionally I will sneeze and my nose occasionally runs, but I think this is from my history of never having treatment for this before. I also have a runny left eye occasionally but all my foster mom does is wipe it once a day with a warm, damp washcloth - it doesn't need medication or anything! My favorite thing is being by my human family and being pet and loved! I will lie by your feet while you watch TV or read and enjoy being the center of attention! I purr non-stop and would love a family with other animals in the home or children that will surround me with love and attention for the rest of my life!!!

Adopt Brody, The Ambassador Of Hope

Hey, I'm Brody! I'm a gray & white, four-year-old, 50-pound hunk a hunk of burning love! I have every reason to be mad at the world but I am sweet as the day is long. I overheard some ladies here say that I was the poster child for neglect, but I would rather be in an ambassador of hope. I know I came in pretty dirty, super underweight, very hungry, with a huge wound on my tail ( which merited the surgical removal of some of it) and some pretty bad parasites in my tummy. No wonder I felt so yucky! Some nice people found me wandering on the road and brought me to this wonderful place. They really seem to love me here and everyone’s been super nice. I am eager to please them and thank them for their kindness. I am a very nice boy who deserves an equally nice home! If you have love in your heart and time in your life I would love to get to know you!

DEARBORN, Mich., March 15, 2018 – Ford is revamping its lineup, building on truck, SUV and commercial strengths, investing in new propulsion and delivering standard connectivity on new vehicles, paving the way for over-the-air updates and the Transportation Mobility Cloud, an open platform that will empower tomorrow’s mobility systems.

All new Ford vehicles will have 4G LTE connectivity by the end of 2019. Ford is also introducing Ford Co-Pilot360, a new driver-assist technology package with standard automatic emergency braking and helps protect from the front, rear and sides.

“Our passion for great vehicles is stronger than ever,” said Jim Hackett, Ford president and CEO. “This showroom transformation will thrill customers, drive profitable growth and further build toward our future of smart vehicles in a smart world.”

Where Ford is Playing
Ford is strengthening its position in the following segments: trucks, SUVs (including off-road and performance versions), hybrids, battery electric vehicles and commercial vehicles.

Trucks: Since the 2014 debut of the new F-150 with a high-strength, military-grade, aluminum-alloy body, Ford has gained 1.3 percentage points of share in the full-size pickup segment. Average F-Series transaction prices lead the segment – up $6,700 per vehicle since 2014 – because of high-end versions like Lariat, King Ranch and Platinum. Ford’s F-Series revenues alone are higher than revenues of Fortune 500 icons such as Facebook, Coca-Cola and Nike.

Ford’s truck business will continue growing as the company adds new models and powertrains with an eye toward continued growth in high-end trims. Some highlights include:
•    2018: New 3.0-liter Power Stroke® diesel engine for F-150, updated version of the popular F-150 Raptor
•    2019: Ranger returns to midsize truck segment; new F-Series Super Duty debuts
•    2020: New F-150 debuts with new hybrid powertrain featuring a mobile generator

SUVs: By 2020, Ford estimates SUV sales could account for 50 percent of U.S. industry retail sales – one reason Ford is reallocating $7 billion in capital from cars to SUVs. By 2020, Ford plans an industry-leading lineup of eight SUVs – five of which will offer hybrid powertrains and one battery electric. Ford SUV sales are estimated to grow 20 percent – more than double the industry rate – to more than 950,000 by 2020, according to LMC Automotive, and surpass 1 million by 2021.
After recently introducing an all-new model at each end of the SUV spectrum – the subcompact EcoSport and full-size Expedition – Ford’s next push is in the highest volume SUV segments. Entirely new versions of the Escape and Explorer debut next year; combined, these two models make up 70 percent of Ford’s SUV volume.

Ford also plans to drive growth with two all-new off-road models: the new Bronco and a yet-to-be-named off-road small utility – both designed to win a growing number of people who love getting away and spending time outdoors with their families and friends.

“Ford helped start the off-road phenomenon and has majored in off-road capability for decades – from the Bronco to the Raptor,” said Jim Farley, Ford president, Global Markets. “Now, we’re ready to reclaim our rightful place as the off-road vehicle leader.”

Ford also will grow its lineup of performance SUVs. Two additions to the Ford Performance lineup include the all-new Edge ST later this year, and an Explorer ST will soon follow. These two new SUVs will help Ford Performance deliver on its promise of 12 new models by 2020, and will help extend the division’s growth, which has risen 81 percent in the last four years.
Ford Performance sales are on track to grow another 71 percent by 2020, driven by SUVs.
Next-Gen Hybrid Electrics: Part of Ford’s new strategy includes going all-in on hybrids to bring more capability to customers of our most popular and high-volume vehicles like F-150, Mustang, Explorer, Escape and Bronco – and serve as a hedge for customers against higher gas prices.

Ford’s new hybrids will offer customers more space than today’s hybrids. On the F-150 Hybrid, Ford will lean in to capability, such as the low-end torque for extra pulling power and the fact it can serve as a mobile generator. Mustang Hybrid will be all about delivering V8-like performance with more low-end torque.

“Hybrids for years have been mostly niche products but are now on the cusp of a mainstream breakout,” Farley said. “The valuable capability they offer – plus fuel efficiency – is why we’re going to offer hybrid variants of our most popular and high-volume vehicles, allowing our loyal, passionate customers to become advocates for the technology.”

Ford’s new hybrid system is designed to be more efficient and less expensive than previous generations. These lower costs – achieved through supply base relationships, using common cell and component design and by manufacturing motors, transmissions and battery packs – with the intention of lowering cost of ownership for customers.

Battery electric vehicles: Battery electric vehicles (BEVs) represent more than a different powertrain – they represent a lifestyle change for consumers, especially for those who have never driven an electric vehicle.

That is why Ford’s strategy includes rethinking the ownership experience so it is more seamless than with today’s gas-powered vehicles. That means making charging an effortless experience at home and on the road as well as offering full-vehicle over-the-air software updates to enhance capability and features.

“Throwing a charger in the trunk of a vehicle and sending customers on their way isn’t enough to help promote the viability of electric vehicles,” said Sherif Marakby, vice president, Autonomous and Electric Vehicles. “In addition to expanding our electric vehicle lineup, we are redesigning the ownership experience to ensure it addresses customer pain points that currently hold back broad adoption today.”

Ford’s BEV manufacturing plan will be more efficient. The company will halve floor space for final assembly operations and reduce capital investment 50 percent. A projected 30 percent improvement in labor efficiency will allow Ford to redeploy employees to do other jobs, including assembly of battery packs (which are normally expensive and complex to ship).

Ford’s new performance battery electric utility arrives in 2020. It is the first of six electric vehicles coming by 2022 as part of the company’s $11 billion global electric vehicle investment.

Commercial vehicles: Ford, the only full-line brand with offerings that stretch from Class 1 to Class 7, has a commanding 38 percent share of the U.S. commercial vehicle market. Last year, it sold more CVs than the second, third and fourth place competitors combined.

To continue building on its commercial vehicle leadership, Ford plans to:

•    Debut a new Transit with 4G LTE connectivity, coming in 2019
•    Extend production of its E-Series cutaway and stripped chassis into the 2020s
•    Offer Automatic Emergency Braking, Lane Departure Warning, Driver Alert System and more on future E-Series, F-650, F-750 and F59 chassis products

Ford earlier this year introduced new versions of its Transit Connect Cargo Van and Transit Connect Wagon, with both arriving at dealerships later this year.

Designing a better PD system
While delivering this new vehicle portfolio, Ford is continuously improving its operational fitness by increasing product speed to market, improving quality and further reducing complexity, and reducing cost. Driving improvements are the company’s new structure and new tools and technologies that drive even more human-centered designs.

Ford’s new organization is designed to ensure company leaders view market and regional demands holistically to decide which vehicles and features customers value most.

This drives more strategic and efficient investments, instead of trying to satisfy individual market requests. The efficiencies benefit the company and individual regions like North America.

Ford also is moving to flexible vehicle architectures and more common parts across models, cutting new product development time – from sketch to dealer showroom – by 20 percent. This is helping Ford achieve its commitment to deliver $4 billion of engineering efficiencies. The company intends to have the most efficient Product Development organization among full-line automakers within five years.

Ford’s five flexible vehicle architectures – body-on-frame, front-wheel-drive unibody, rear-wheel-drive unibody, commercial van unibody and BEV – are paired with module “families” that address the power pack, electrical pack and vehicle configurations. Seventy percent of each vehicle’s engineering will be driven from this new architecture approach, with 30 percent of content – including grilles, hoods, doors and more – customized for each vehicle.

For instance, as more vehicles become connected, new analytics tools will show which vehicle technologies customers use most often. This new data-driven insight will help determine which features to grow and invest in and which to eliminate, reducing manufacturing complexity, improving pricing, reducing incentives and building revenue over time.

Simplification is another key aspect of the plan. Ford already has reduced orderable combinations on Ford SUVs by 80 percent since 2014, including a 97 percent reduction on the new Edge coming later this year.

New manufacturing tools and technologies: Increased use of augmented and virtual reality are helping reduce Ford’s plant changeover time by an estimated 25 percent, which adds an average $50 million to the company’s bottom line per changeover.

Simulating various production processes and assembly line configurations in the virtual world helps identify potentially hazardous maneuvers and fine-tune workflows before construction even begins, saving an estimated 20 percent of tooling cost on each vehicle program.

The company also is increasing its use of collaborative robots that can perform jobs quickly and repetitively, helping reduce the risk of injury to employees, freeing them up for more high-value jobs and improving the company’s bottom line.

“We’re looking at every part of our business, making it more fit and ensuring that every action we take is driven by what will serve our customers in a way that supports our fitness and performance goals,” said Joe Hinrichs, president, Global Operations.

‘Champion for Children’ Nominations Now Open

Do you know someone who goes above and beyond?

The Great Start Collaborative and LACASA Center’s CAP (Child Abuse Prevention) Council are asking Livingston County residents to consider who is a Champion for Children in our community. 
“We want to recognize the people in our community who go above and beyond to positively impact children’s lives.” said CAP Council Coordinator, Holly Naylor.

 “Anyone can make a tremendous impact towards ensuring that Livingston County children grow up safe, healthy and ready to succeed in life simply by living their lives in a way that builds up children and families,” Naylor said. “We want to recognize those individuals and thank them for their dedication to our children.”

Nominees may be a person whose love of children is evident in the work they do, or in the way they spend their extra time. The winner could be someone who volunteers to mentor children, provides a safe foster care home, or advocates for vulnerable kids. Past recipients have been educators, coaches, public employees, foster parents, child care providers, and community volunteers

“Great Start Livingston is partnering with the CAP Council to recognize our Champion for Children,” said Robin Schutz, Great Start Livingston coordinator. “Supporting families and children is the focus of our efforts. With this award, we are able to acknowledge those who work tirelessly to make a difference for our Livingston County children and families.”

The person chosen as the 2018 Champion for Children will be recognized during a special luncheon in April following the CAP Council’s annual Plant a Pinwheel Celebration. All award nominees will be invited to the luncheon.

Adopt The Purr-fect Kitten Hobbs!

They call me Hobbs! I am an adorable, one year old, short hair, orange tabby who already had a very rough experience in my young life and almost did not survive! I was rescued by another shelter and then transferred here in desperate need of urgent medical care after suffering from extreme malnutrition, fleas and dehydration. Thankfully, I received the medical treatment and loving care in a foster home until I was healthy and now ready for adoption! I am still adjusting to being at the shelter and don’t like being confined in a cage or carrier, but once I am out, you will find I am a really sweet, playful, young boy who likes your attention and would be so happy to grow up in a loving family!

Adopt Sonny, The Yellow Lab With An Amazing Story!

Hi, I'm Sonny! I'm an 8 year old yellow lab. I'm a neutered male and I’m updated on all of my vetting! I came here from another shelter where I was found as a stray. When I got here I had a mass on my shoulder the size of my head, and the vet staff ran a test and found out I was also heart worm positive. I went into surgery to have my mass removed and Dr. Amy removed as much of the mass as she could, but it was intertwined with my muscle so she could not get it all. I then went home with one of the vet techs to recover, and that is where I will stay until I am adopted! My mass was benign, although it is something that may grow back slowly. I am staying with 2 other dogs and 2 cats right now. I don't mind any of my roommates, but I do not want to play with them. I have my own room in my foster house so when they are being annoying I have somewhere to get away from them. I LOVE my toys especially my tennis ball to play fetch with! I will throw my toy at you over and over again until you throw it for me. But since I have heart worm, I'm not supposed to play which is pretty frustrating for me. I had my heart worm treatments but it will take me about 6 months to fully recover from it. In that time I must stay inactive, so that my heart has time to heal. I am a very good boy in the house. I will not get on the furniture, even though my roommates do. I just like a warm blanket to lay on the floor next to your bed at night! If you sit on the floor with me sometimes I like to sit on your lap, until I find another toy I want to play with. I also have a human foster sister who is only a year old, and even though she wants to climb all over me, I really like her! I would be an amazing addition to any family, all I want is to have a human to love me and play fetch with me!

Ford F-150 Named Consumer Report‘s Best Truck of 2018

The Ford F-150 is no stranger to winning prestigious awards. But this latest win might just be the most impressive to date!

Winning major awards is nothing new for the Ford F-150, America’s perennial best-selling truck. But when you take home the gold from an unbiased, independent, and notoriously picky publication like Consumer Reports, it’s certainly worth mentioning. Which is exactly why we’re impressed (but not exactly surprised) to see the Ford F-150 top Consumer Reports 10 Top Picks of 2018 in the full-size truck category.

To land on the coveted list, vehicles must be good at everything. Consumer Reports grades them based not only on their own rankings and real-world testing, but also through extensive owner surveys. Overall scores come from a combination of road-test performance, owner satisfaction, safety, and reliability. Consumer Reports conducts over 50 tests and surveys over a half-million owners. It’s about as thorough as an automotive test can get.

And it’s clear that CR is enamored with the Ford F-150. They call it an “impressive, innovative workhorse” that “pulls ahead of the pack thanks to its weight-reduction design and turbocharged six-cylinder engine.” They also refer to the truck’s “standout” fuel economy, “quick acceleration,” and “effortless towing ability.”

Couple that with a host of “clever features,” a “spacious rear seat,” and “ample room for tools and gear,” and you’ve got the makings of an outstanding truck. One that stands head and shoulders above the competition, both in sales figures and in the real world. So in case you were wondering, yes, the Ford F-150 is still the best truck you can buy. And, quite honestly, probably the best all-around vehicle on the market, period!
